Severe Storms Hit Southeast

A line of severe thunderstorms crossing the Southeast caused an apparent tornado in Tupelo, Mississippi on Thursday. A mobile home was overturned in northwestern Alabama by strong winds. In northwest Alabama, there were no confirmed reports of tornadoes but winds gusting up to 60 mph also damaged a house and a building in a rural area. There were reports of fallen trees and debris across northeast Mississippi, and officials were dispatched to check out the damage at a shopping mall in Tupelo, Mississippi, about 160 miles northeast of Jackson. Trees tangled with power lines, crisscrossing one road near a fast-food restaurant and a grocery store.
